If anyone knows of a good deal on a Harley, I'm looking. I'm open on models and depending on the model will depend on what I'm willing to spend. I got in a wreck on mine today and need to get back on the horse. Yeah, I'm fine, just pissed.

Sorry to hear that you went down. What happened and is your bike a total loss?

I'm going to hell for this but... So you were the fat 2nd kid I took for a ride in the race truck today that couldn't barely fit in it and then after all the effort of getting into a race truck proceeds to tell me to drive as slow as possible? LOL God I'm a dick!!!!

I have a 6ft and a 8ft and live about 5 minutes from Marn...




Heck of a fun day! Got about 10 kids rides in the race truck. Massive turnout of people! No stress and just fun! Ran the crap out of the race truck with zero issues other then a solid layer of mud to clean off it now. Launched it pretty good a few times too I think. Got to catch up with the guy who got me into offroad racing and I first ever rode shotgun in a race truck with. His kid is now driving the truck! LOL

Oh and I rode in this... And the video doesn't do the truck justice! It sounds more like an indy car!


Hands down the fastest offroad ride I've ever had! At least twice, maybe even three times the speed Marn probably ran today!

Marn, when my rig is back up and running, we should go get your rig stuck in that spot again so you can put some technique and skills into it without the drama and get yourself out.

Jared, I have a few a-frame ladders, no latter though. I got a tall one and a not as tall one, no idea what length the shorter one is, I think the tall is like 10ft tho, but between the two I bet we could get ya taken care of.

Traffic stopped in an instant at a pedestrian crosswalk on eastern. I couldn't stop in time and rear ended a truck. I don't know if the bike is totaled yet, but I want to find a bike to ride in the mean time.

Also, thanks to everybody who went, putting up with my old, slow, bouncy, broken down unreliable ****, lol I honestly feel bad for being the slow guy and the weak link.
You don't need to feel bad. I thought the pace was fine. I didn't care to go much faster. Jared and I picked it up for just a couple minutes, but with the dust, I preferred to just chug along. And a wheelin trip is absolutely not complete without me dragging someone out or using my awesome winch.

And yeah, when Dani threw the door open in the rut, I cringed when it slammed into the dirt. But that is what girls do, so it's ok I guess.

I went and checked out that wagoneer. It was kind of a mess. The guy is flopping at some apartments next to the Salvation Army on Main street... Not that there is anything wrong with that, but he is homeless and has obviously lived out of the waggy for awhile. So it was actually pretty rough. Runs, but not strong and most of the electric stuff doesn't work. I dunno. Really not even sure what I'm looking for at this point. I really liked yours and Steve's though.

Maybe stop by tomorrow if it's ok? I would appreciate it

So yeah, it was actually a little violent at one point when it slammed down into the rut. I was surprised it didn't taco the right rear wheel. I think he would have gotten out fine if the fuel tank didn't shift over and pinch the fuel pump wire between the tank and frame rail; damn thing wouldn't start with the shorted fuel pump. But we didn't find that til we got it yanked out of there.
